  • Portable tube makes it perfect for on-the-go

        It did not make my cream lipsticks matte. Not instantly and not within time. It also wore off quickly. The idea of buying one product to make all your lipsticks matte was great but unfortunately the product did not live up to its name.

        when I first applyed it, I tried tapping that takes a while to work and you end up using too much product. if you put a little pin sized amount on your ring finger and just glided it over your lipstick to lightly mix it in. it makes your lips matte with a feeling kind of comparable to the Maybelline the matte. How they're matte but have a creamy Satin feel. It ultimately makes your cream lipstick last a little longer but not as a true matte lipstick. ultimately gave three stars because I feel as though it is overpriced but it is a good product.

                This does not work as stated and doesn't do what it says. It turned my lipstick into a matted mess. Not worth the price

                      A:

                      Hi There! The Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer will make your lipstick last longer, but will not make it transfer proof. I suggest trying it with one of our Be Legendary Lipsticks in cream or matte. I think you'll be surprised to to see how long they wear.
